Track Name: Albion
Albion

40 days to Albion
And I suppose
Some things never change
Buy why
Some things never change

All we had and all we lost
I suppose
Some things must be replaced
But why
Must some things be replaced

Oh, what we gave up for grace
vanished in the grey
we turned our heads to pray
and lost you once again

40 days and I'll be home
I suppose, never to return
But why
I never will return

All we had and all we lost
I suppose
Some thing just fade away
But why
Some things fade away

Oh, what we gave up for grace
Vanished in the grey
We turned our heads to pray
And lost you once again
Track Name: Penny In A Diamond Mine
Penny in a Diamond Mine

Do you have a way to slow down lord
Do you have a way to slow down lord
I'm a sinner but I don't know why lord
A sinner but I don't know why, don't know why

They woke me in the morning with my britches on
Got a love of the highway, fear of the dawn
And I'm the only one who takes my time lord
The only one who takes my time, takes my time

When the bridges broke
Our bodies fell into the tide
When the water froze
Eyes were staring at the sky
Thought I left here for a penny in a diamond mine
You get just one of those before you die

Do you have a way to slow down lord
Do you have a way to slow down lord
I ain't a beggar but I don't mind trying lord
Ain' a beggar but I don't mind trying, don't mind trying

I've been sleeping like a liar with a fool for a bed
Running from a lover who once though I was dead
And I'm the only one who's seen her cry lord
The only one who's seen her cry, seen her cry

When the bridges broke
Our bodies fell into the tide
When the water froze
Eyes were staring at the sky
Thought I left here for a penny in a diamond mine
You get just one of those before you die
Track Name: Robin & The Willow
Robin & The Willow

This one said I gotta go
A little bit of loving has taken it's toll
In the morning, in the morning
The rain came down and we ran like hell
The rain came down and we rang that bell
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning

And if a robin makes the willow shake
We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again

Well a cannonball hit my wall
A little bit harder than it did before
And the wall caved in, the wall caved in
Then the rain came down and we ran like hell
The rain came down and we rang that bell
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning

And if a robin makes the willow shake
We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again

I can take my baby back to the graveyard line
Where I turned 21, no I don't mind dying
You can pass that bottle or hold my hand
Pass that bottle or hold my hand
I can take my baby back to the graveyard line
Where I turned 21, no I don't mind dying again

This one said I gotta go
A little bit of loving has taken it's toll
In the morning, in the morning
The rain came down and we ran like hell
The rain came down and we rang that bell
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning, oh my God
In the morning

And if a robin makes the willow shake
We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again
Track Name: Raise A Glass
Raise A Glass

Raise a glass
Call me home
I'll be alright, I'll be alright
I'll be the only one
Ready for the fall
Covering the head of curls
Ready for the fall
To wear you like a string of pearls

Calloused hands
Can raise me up
But just for a while, just for a while
Until I'm the only one
Left holding up the wall
Covering this head of curls
Holding up the wall
To wear you like a string of pearls

Raised to stand
On broken bones
But just for a while, just for a while
'Til I'm the only one
Left creeping down the hall
Covering this head of curls
Sneaking down the hall
To wear you like a string of pearls

Left here alone
Away from the whole wide world
And we shuffled along
Along with the plans we had
To never grow tired
Keep singing the same sad song
About leaving along
Along with the plans we had
To never grow tired...
Track Name: Bedroom Doors
Bedroom Doors

She dreamed in red for white
Behind the bedroom door
Next to mine, next to mine
And she'd climb the stairs before I'd rise
And try to fly, to fly

I never raised my voice
Above a whisper to say
You were right, you were right
The hand that slipped into your pocket
It was mine, it was mine

All of the times I tried
Just to save those things
That were mine, that were mine
But I stay crooked while you follow
In the night, in the night

I'm yours, I'm yours
But I didn't mean to leave you with the devil in the dirt
I turned, I turned
And saw you lying sweetly with the love that you deserved
And I'm sure, I'm sure
You can pay your way to heaven with the money that you earned
But you roll, don't roll
I've been saving all my pity for the Sunday night low
And I know, I know
I can pay my way to heaven with the money that I stole
Track Name: Waitress
Waitress

I took the young hand of a wide eyed waitress
Down into the parlor where her boots came off
She said I have never been alone

And why would you stand there with warm hands waiving
When I'm just trying to tell you about this dream that I had
You know I have never been alone

But you could take me for a while

She put a hand upon my heart and with one eye open
Said I just want to see you break the chains that you made
You know I have never been alone

So I took the young hand of a wide eyed waitress
Down into the parlor where her boots came off
She said I have never been alone
Track Name: Curses For The Queen
Curses For The Queen

We dance to the curious sound of our own songs
And we broke that china doll parade
It wasn't right:
But we all held curses for the queen

I laughed at a hand sticking out from the rose bed
Where we lay like captives on the day
And it wasn't right:
But we all held curses for the queen

Oh river don't run me dry
I've got to hide cold water in my veins

I'll stand with my feet on the streets of this old town
Where we stayed to paint our lives in grey
And it wasn't right"
But we all held curses for the queen

Oh river don't run me dry
I've got to hide cold water in my veins
Track Name: The Locket
The Locket

If I could have you just follow me 'round
And cover that tracks that I leave on the ground
I'd be the quiet one, you'd be my queen
Or I could just let you lie sleeping with me

You took an extra spray of Sunday's perfume
You walked by me fast, it lingered where you stood
You where the younger one, barely 19
And I was the one with the ghost next to me

I took down the only book you left on my shelf
The pages where cut and inside it held
A tattered old picture of the loneliest man
And the locket you wore, he held in his hand

And I know now that my only friend
Is the locket you left on my bed
Track Name: Blame It On The Violets
Blame It On The Violets

One beneath the trees wrapped in violets
Called me the king of the arrogant
Blame it on the violets

Lover would you please play your violin
I've been breathing your rosin in
Blame it on the violets

Oh your eyes
Oh your eyes just look for gold
Oh your eyes
